Yes. If you are coonnected to your routing device by two methods you will get two IPs from that router.
In this case one for Ethernet and one for wireless.
iChat and some other apps can not distinguish that there are two IPs and give conflicting info to the SNATMAP server as to what the computer's IP is and problems will arise.
It sounds like in this case that the wireless connection attempts to take precedence even when lower in the list.
This info in the original post should be useful.

Thanks for the explanation and technical detail. I was baffled by this. Because the router was setup properly and my other computer, a Dual MDD G4, could videoconference without any problem. At one point I even thought bootcamp might have been the culprit.
I had just purchased the computer and had to install so many things on it that I could hardly pinpoint the cause of this problem.
Everything runs smoothly now.
